Eva Iñiguez Santamaría is a PhD student at MARE – Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre, Regional Agency for the Development of Research Technology and Innovation (ARDITI) and Madeira University.
Eva got her bachelor’s in biology (environmental science mention) at Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain) in 2017. Between 2018-2020 she did her master’s in marine biology at Universidad de La Laguna (Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain) where had the opportunity to work with the trophic ecology of deep-diving cetaceans as short-finned pilot whales for her master thesis which was evaluated as an honourable mention. From that moment her interests in pelagic systems and the ecology of top predators led her to do an ERASMUS + internship in Madeira (2021) where she had the opportunity to write the proposal for her PhD thesis about trophic ecology and ecotoxicology obtaining a grant for its realization (MIT Portugal- FCT fellowship).
